The Type 8 rotary airlock is the latest addition to Smoot’s airlock line. It has been designed for use in severe, abrasive material applications (similar to cement, limestone, grout, charcoal), but has also found a home in those difficult or expensive to replace locations due to its extended life. The Type 8 rotary airlock starts with a heavy-duty airlock casting, with sizes available from 9 to 30 in. Ceramic tiles are bonded to the internal surfaces. A closed-end rotor with tungsten carbide tips and shroud insures the valve will provide superior wear resistance.
